Neutral coriaceous On Apr 13, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

There are skilled gardeners in Z6-7 who have had these fail to winter over. This is not surprising, as it's one of the tazetta-type daffodils, which are much less hardy than most narcissus. I'd be very dubious about planting this north of Z6.
